Event Recap: 2020 National Security Legal Outlook

On Thursday, January 16, INSA, with the support of the Legal Affairs Roundtable, hosted a half-day panel event that focused on two pressing national security law issues: (1) improving personnel security information-sharing between government and industry, and (2) the impact of forthcoming implementation guidance for the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (FIRRMA).

The program began with keynote remarks from the Honorable Jason Klitenic, ODNI General Counsel. Following, a panel of leaders from across the national security community took the stage to discuss government-industry personnel security information sharing under the Privacy Act. The panelists included:

  • Kevin Phillips, President, ManTech
  • Elizabeth Ames, Privacy and Civil Liberties Counsel, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
  • Ben Powell, Co-Chair, Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice, WilmerHale; former ODNI General Counsel
  • Jon Rosenwasser, Minority Budget Director, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
  • Dr. Peregrine Russell-Hunter, Director, Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA)
  • Moderator: John Carlin, Partner, Morrison & Foerster, LLP

The second panel addressed FIRRMA implementation: managing threats from foreign investment. The speakers included:

  • Matthew Borman, Deputy Asst. Secretary for Export Administration, Bureau of Industry & Security, Dept. of Commerce
  • Colin Costello, Deputy Director, Investment Security Group, ODNI
  • Hon. Thomas Feddo, Assistant Secretary for Investment Security, Treasury Department
  • David Hanke, Partner, Arent Fox
  • Linda Lourie, Associate General Counsel (Acquisition & Logistics), Dept. of Defense
  • Moderator: Giovanna Cinelli, Partner & Practice Lead, Int. Trade and National Security, Morgan Lewis & Bockius, LLP

The room was packed with attendees from government, industry, and academia who enjoyed networking with colleagues over breakfast and interacting with the speakers during Q&A sessions.
